Tassievore 2017
Lovely local Tasmanian food to share.

March kicks off the Tassievore Eat Local Challenge for 2017. Stock up your pantry and harvest your veggies for the 2017 Tassievore Eat Local Challenge! Now in its 5th year, we are once again asking you to take the Challenge - support our amazing local growers and businesses and eat like kings and queens! Throughout 2017, keep an eye out for local products, shop at your corner store, plant some seeds and search out Tasmanian produce at your favourite restaurant. There is no better or more delicious way to contribute to a stronger Tasmanian economy, improve your diet, and connect with our community.  We have lots of plans for 2017, including the Living Local Feast (see below) and regular features from our local food correspondents.  More information in the articles below.

Living Local Feast
A celebration of Tasmanian food.

Join us for the 7th Annual Living Local Feast – a celebration of Tasmanian Food. The Feast is an opportunity to experience the wonders of our island state through a gourmet multi-course meal made entirely from Tasmanian ingredients. We are super excited to have chef, Cameron Perry and the Hamlet team, on board to help create an amazing spread for you! The feast will be followed by a fundraising auction to support the work of Sustainable Living Tasmania and the Tassievore Eat Local Challenge. So, please gather your friends and join us for this magical evening celebration of all that is wonderful about Tasmania! Tickets are $60 (or $50 for Sustainable Living Tasmania members).

Tassievore - Food Correspondents
People sharing their food stories.

Are you passionate about local food and supporting Tasmanian farmers and businesses? We are currently seeking people to contribute to the Tassievore Eat Local Challenge as Local Food Correspondents. We'd like to collate stories about sourcing local food - from restaurants, your garden, corner store or local market. We'd like to share profiles of people who have amazing backyard gardens, larger scale farms, or can cook up a delectable dish featuring local produce. If you love finding new things, experimenting with food or just talking to people who are, we'd love to hear from you. We are hoping that our Local Food Correspondents can submit at least one story with accompanying photo each month. If this sounds like a fun way to contribute, please contact Lissa.
